Yes, recharging is a problem, particularly for long distance lorries and tractors. As far as farm tractors are concerned they can be recharged at the farm buildings where they have power. As far as forestry machinery is concerned that is a problem as most places the tractor/equipment would be stored overnight would have no power, and even solar is tricky in the woods. That and the price would put us off for the foreseeable future, and could scupper everything for us if diesel was no longer available or very expensive. Overall, we come out fossil fuel positive, and probably carbon positive, as our trees and coppice growing must take in a lot of carbon in each year.

Can I ask the question? If you have an idea, but-as in my case-you are not an engineer, can you protect the idea to be able to get a royalty of anything that is subsequently produced? Where or how do you protect the idea? This is something for the big car manufacturers to do but it needs to be protected first. Can you protect the principle as well as the production item, all before it goes into production?
My idea a is relatively simple one, but could save a lot of money.

You might be able to protect if with a patent, but that is not a thing I know a lot about. There is probably someone near you who deals with patents and could tell you if it is protectable. Certainly worth pursuing.
